In a story by ABC News on December 16th, 2021, it talks about how the Biden administration has blacklisted and sanctioned dozens of Chinese government research institutes and private-sector tech firms, accusing them of weaponizing technology for use at home and abroad, the U.S. departments of Commerce and Treasury recently announced. In particular, the U.S. warned that these entities were working as part of a broader Chinese government strategy to develop and deploy biotechnology, including “brain-control weaponry,” for possible offensive use and as part of its crackdown on Uighurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities.

“The scientific pursuit of biotechnology and medical innovation can save lives. Unfortunately, the communist regime is choosing to use these technologies to pursue control over its people and its repression of members of ethnic and religious minority groups,” Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said, “We cannot allow U.S. commodities, technologies, and software that support medical science and biotechnical innovation to be diverted toward uses contrary to U.S. national security,” she added in a statement.

While the majority of the blacklisted firms were designated because of their ties to China’s so-called “civilian-military fusion strategy,” where civilian fields like medicine and biotechnology are allegedly weaponized to support the military, several were also designated for exporting sensitive technology to Iran. The Treasury Department designated eight more private firms, cutting them off from the U.S. financial system and threatening sanctions on those that do business with them, for reportedly working with Xinjiang authorities.

For many decades now the communist regime has been stealing intellectual property and innovative mechanisms to further enhance humanity through science and biotechnology, for it now to be exploited by the Chinese military to keep an eye on the religious minorities via facial recognition and so-called “brain-control weaponry” in the country’s Westernmost province, known formally as Xinjiang.
